South Cariboo Summer Festival in full swing

“Come on out, support the event”

The South Cariboo Summer Festival is on today and tomorrow at the South Cariboo Rec Centre (Aug. 11 and 12).

“I’m feeling really good that it’s finally here,” says Shelly Morton.

She said the skydiving is awesome, adding that the professionals jumped last night and put on a little bit of a show.

“We’ve already have a couple of jumpers come down,” she says. “I just want to thank my volunteers. They’ve been working really hard these last few days and [we] couldn’t do it without them.”

She invites everyone to come on out.

“This is a huge community that’s been brought together for the community by the community from our sponsors to volunteers, a lot of planning has gone into it so come on out, support the event, pay $5 bucks at the gate, kids under five are free and we can make it bigger and better next year.”

Official times are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow.
